Samsug HT-SK5 fails with 'Protection' on display

Samsung HT-SK5 Home-theater-in-a-box fails shortly after poweron with 'protection' message on front panel display, thens powersoff. Most help I got from Samsung was that fan had failed. Fan starts at poweron runs fine - then off at poweroff. Repeated pressing of Open/Close will cycle 5 disk tray, then failure. Unplug then plugin power cord then press Open/Close will cause tray to extend about half way, then retract, cycle the tray then fail. This unit has been off warranty for a long time - either I resolve the problem, or trash it.

Can anybody assist?

Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

Need help with HT-z410


When your home theater's display reads PROTECTION, it means the home theater is over heating and the unit will shut down to prevent any damage. This can happen if the unit is stacked along with other electronic devices or the unit is in an enclosed area that prevents the unit from cooling properly. To decrease the chance of overheating, relocate your home theater to a more open area.




If the home theater display reads PROTECTION every time you turn it on, no matter where or how the unit is placed, it needs service. To set up service call Samsung Customer Care at 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864). Have your model number and serial number on hand to set up service.
